Doing some research on Sportster Breathers and could use some dimensions, if there's anyone out there with the pieces to take them. I'm looking for two in particular.
One, the distance from the washer on the genny armature to the gasket surface on the engine case when the genny is in position.
Two, the distance from the gasket surface on a cam cover to the face of the breather opening in the cam cover.
I'm trying to get an idea what the gap is between the washer and the breather opening when everything is assembled and in place. In other words how much room exiting breather air has to get by the washer and enter the breather.
Thanks in advance to anyone who has the pieces and time to do the research!
